Hi Open,

I was flabbergasted when I first saw this video a few years ago of the renewed violinist, Joshua Bell, playing his violin undercover in the Washington metro station as the hypnotized masses strode by -- too asleep to hear his angelic music. It is such a powerful illustration of your words:

"This must tell you something crucially important: you cannot value or under sell yourself, by attaching your greatness to the support, adoration, acceptance or popularity of the masses. They are simply too fickle, or else too tied up in society's conditioning to see the real light within you. So why waste your time?"

I love this deeply inspiring article and your overall message that greatness is a feeling of coming home to yourself and expressing who you truly are -- and that no amount of acceptance, popularity, fame, or fortune is worth silencing the glorious song of your soul that only you can sing.

"A bell is no bell 'til you ring it,
A song is no song 'til you sing it…" -- Oscar Hammerstein

Thank you!

Catherine :)
